I had diagnosed Epstein bar several yrs ago, was not fun...I feel I’ve never fully recovered from it. It can lead to chronic fatigue syndrome etc.

Darian Sanayei. He got it also in the absolute worst possible time considering that this is his last year in MX2.

Very Good Question, I have wondered this , I have been a fan for 30 years and it seems like motocross racers get this
A lot more than the general public, perhaps from taking in mouth fulls of dirt ?
Or??

Mononucleosis or mono since we seem to be hell bent on continuing to call it EBV.

From Wikipedia:
The Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), formally called Human gammaherpesvirus 4, is one of eight known human herpesvirus types in the herpes family, and is one of the most common viruses.
It is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis ("mono" or "glandular fever"). It is also associated with various non-malignant, premalignant, and malignant Epstein-Barr virus-associated lymphoproliferative diseases such as Burkitt lymphoma, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis,[2] and Hodgkin's lymphoma; non-lymphoid malignancies such as gastric cancer and nasopharyngeal carcinoma; and conditions associated with human immunodeficiency virus such as hairy leukoplakia and central nervous system lymphomas.[3][4] The virus is also associated with the childhood disorders of Alice in Wonderland Syndrome[5] and acute cerebellar ataxia[6] and, based on some evidence, higher risks of developing certain autoimmune diseases,[7] especially dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome,[8][9] and multiple sclerosis.[10] [11]. About 200,000 cancer cases per year are thought to be attributable to EBV.[12]

Most people become infected with EBV and gain adaptive immunity. In the United States, about half of all five-year-old children and about 90% of adults have evidence of previous infection.[14] Infants become susceptible to EBV as soon as maternal antibody protection disappears. Many children become infected with EBV, and these infections usually cause no symptoms or are indistinguishable from the other mild, brief illnesses of childhood. In the United States and other developed countries, many people are not infected with EBV in their childhood years.[15] When infection with EBV occurs during adolescence, it causes infectious mononucleosis 35 to 50% of the time.[16]


Seems it's very common and not a moto phenomenon.

Yep, calling it Epstein barr instead of mono makes it sound more official and unusual.

Mouthful of dirt? I guess you could call it that...mouthful of something, that’s for sure

Andrew Short did not have Epstein Barr. He had a thyroid issue (hypothyroidism). I only know this because I spoke with his trainer (Seiji) at the time when it was happening, as I was just starting to deal with hypothyroidism myself.

Every single rider that is underperforming seems to contract it.

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

There is also chronic active EBV in which the symptoms last even longer and can recur out of nowhere. Lots of people who have mono don't know it simply because they do not put the strain on their body... they might just be a little more tired than usual or never actually notice at all.

I’ve got hypothyroidism too. It’s like EBV but is chronic and never goes away.

Correct. Luckily, if you can get your TSH levels right with medication, it never gets "perfect" but I was at least able to get back to a point where you can ride and train again.

I tend to think I gave myself hypothyroidism from all of the crazy training I did in college. I honestly think I took it too far for too long and that is what pushed my system over the edge. Looking back on it now, all I ever knew was more, more, more, and I was training for triathlons while also training for GNCC/harescrambles. I look back and just shake my head that I used to think taking a rest day was a bad thing. Overtraining is by far worse than not training at all.

I don't remember Brock having EB, but he does have rare blood disorder (similar to myself) where when he gets really fatigued and/or hot it makes him sick. I have to be really careful riding offroad for several hours at a time in the summer or I get deathly sick for hours.

Same thing happened to me in college. Don’t know if it came from over training or extracurricular activities with certain girls. Either way it sucked. It’s definitely been way more difficult to stay motivated and active since getting it.

Do an iodine test on your wrist. Google it.
